You may be thinking that Riky Rick is living his best life, and that is not a lie. But do you know that a week before his Family Values album release he only had R3000 in his account?

The rapper - who recently made headlines for calling out "corruption" in the industry - has been motivating his fans to go out and do their best to flourish.

In a series of tweets Riky shared what he thought it took to be successful even when the odds were stacked against you. He said that all it took is faith and that no matter how hard the struggles are, don't let people with money make you feel inferior.

Also that, that Whatsapp of yours can be used for better things other than "chatting with hunnies."

The dude made it when R3k was all he had left, we think he knows what he is talking about... Listen to experience fam!
